Can it be that we don’t already have enough excellent pizza in town, whether your tastes run to Delancey or Serious Pie, Via Tribunali or Tutta Bella, Pagliacci or Bar Del Corso, Flying Squirrel or Veraci, or… should I go on?

The owners of Patxi’s, a small but fast-growing chain, are betting Seattle appetites still have room for more. They’re planning to expand to Seattle in 2014, opening a storefront at 5323 Ballard Ave N.W. to join the company’s existing 11 branches — nine in the Bay Area and two in Colorado. The company’s done well in other tough markets; winning the readers poll in San Francisco Weekly for San Francisco’s best pizza.

Patxi’s does specialize in Chicago deep-dish pizzas, a less common specialty around here, though it has thin crust pizzas as well.

Still, do they have any fears about going slice to slice in our city? CEO Bill Freeman said via email that “We are confident that we will rank with the best of them in Seattle. We can only ask that people give us a try, and we will let them be the judge of our food and hospitality.”

For an advance look of what to expect, check out one of their Bay Area menus over here.
